What if Jesus Wrote a Letter to Your Church?
Ok, today it might not be a letter, rather an e-mail, but the idea is still valid. In Revelation 2 we have four letters written to different churches. I believe that these were four churches in existence that day, and I also believe that these four churches can represent similar situations that we find in the church today. There are four churches listed in chapter 2 and three churches listed in chapter 3. In all but one case there are good things listed and bad things listed. In every church today I suppose there are good things that can be celebrated and bad things that need to be corrected. I’m going to spend some time today thinking about what a letter to Buffalo Valley Church of the Brethren would look like. What would Jesus say to us? John often writes in this chapter, “He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. I hope that we have “ears to hear” and we will listen. Even if you are not in church leadership, God can still speak to you about your church and your life…listen. Don’t attend a church? What are you waiting for?
